Just a little PSA for anyone whose been trying to log into Warcraft 2 through GoG.

The Global gateway stopped working a little over a week ago. If you try to log in, it'll just get stuck at "verifying cd-key."
This gateway was also meant for Diablo 1 as well, meaning you can't play that either. Trying to log into Diablo will leave you stuck at "checking versions"

This is purely a gateway issue; nobody can log in at all. It's completely up to GoG to fix it, if they decide its even worth looking into. Don't expect a solution anytime soon.

In the mean time, there's two ways you can play Warcraft 2 online.
The first is by using the original Battle.Net gateways, which still accept the Warcraft 2 BNE client. You would need to use the original cd-rom client (or at least an ISO of it) because the GoG client gets rejected by it. The cd-key you have from the GoG copy works on the original Bnet gateways. With that being said, barely anyone has bothered playing on it in years, so good luck finding people to play with on there unless you know some friends who want to play the game with you.

The other is by using a private server, which I prefer to avoid. A quick google search will tell you what you need to know if you want to check that out.
maybe we must contact Blizzard? I didnt check, but believe that this is true. Both gateways old\new are work (weeks ago) and both do not have anyone (1-2 ppl who came and out).

ive been trying to add the private servers to my GOG install and when i run the file, it acts like it works but doesnt open up the other servers on the list, still just stuck with the global server
maybe gog changed the registry keys, where w2 stores the gateway information... try this gateway editor http://brutlenet.brut.me
